Trio of Cards

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today to bring you some fun, crafty projects for this weekend.

I am an over achiever today… hah… because I actually have 3 cards to share with you. Let’ get on with it, shall we? For my first card, I used the new Geometric Circles Cover Plate to cut out the background out of gold pearl paper.

How gorgeous is this geometric pattern? I think it’s stunning and made such an elegant background. To soften the look I combine it with a set from previous release, the Fresh Cut Carnations stamp along with its coordinating diesAfter I layered the flowers on the card, then I stamped the thinking of you sentiment from Penned Sentiments set. Finished by adding some sequins from Mint Sugar Couture Mix.

The next couple cards I totally went pastel, cause I am ready for spring!! I had lots of fun watercoloring this card, using the gorgeous 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate Die.

I die cut this piece out of watercolor cardstock and did loose watercoloring on it. Once it dry, I adhere it to  the card base and finish it by stamping the sentiment from Large Peony 4 set and adhere some mix size dew drops.

Now, my last but not least card is a bit more brighter, using Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die.

When I saw this dies, I was like oohh, ahh…., cause it’s just beautiful!! Just like the previous card, I die cut this out of watercolor cardstock and just watercolor the flowers and the leaves and leave the sentiment clean. I added an extra sentiment from Penned Sentiments set (I edit the sentiment by cutting out the scripty happy birthday part).

There you go, 3 cards using the latest 3 new dies from The Ton. I hope you like them and hopefully get you inspired. Don’t forget, The Ton also have monthly challenge and you still have a few more days to join our February challenge. Hope you can join us. That’s all from me  today and may you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers….

New Coverplate Dies

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with three cards featuring our new Coverplate dies form February Flash Release.  In the first two cards I used Geometric Circles coverplate die cut as my backdrop for a tulip bouquet arranged using Loose Tulips and a Large Florals Daisy. The last card is showcasing Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die.

Here is my first card.

To start off I did some no line watercoloring on the Loose Tulips using Color Burst and cut them all out with Coordinating dies. Set them aside, I started making the background panel.  It was made using a kind of “smooshing” technique. I applied silver and peony pink Nuvo embellishment mousse on a acetate sheet, sprayed water on it and “smooshed”the colors on some mixed media paper. I then covered the paper with a scrunched cling wrap and let it dry. After it was dry I blended some pink inks on the left part of the panel. The Geometric Circles coverplate was cut from a silver glitter cardstock I made using Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive Glitter Paper. I cut the Geometric Circles two more times from some white cardstock and stack them all together. I glued the background panel on a top folding white cardbase, mounted  Geometric Circles on it and arranged the tulips as I wanted, some glued flat, some raised using foam adhesives. I borrowed the sentiment from Coming Up Daisies.  I silver heat embossed it in a curved line on a white banner and added pink ink blending on the edges.

I used the silver glitter cut out pieces left from the first card for my second card.

TT0212 3 3 WM

First I cut a Geometric Circles from a white cardstock and inlaid the silver glitter cut out pieces into it. I heat embossed another Geometric Circles in Rose Gold and mounted it slightly off set on the silver panel. The second and the third layer of  Large Florals Daisy were stamped in Peach Blossom and Coralline Hybrid ink respectively and colored with Zig brush markers. The flower center was stamped in Beach blondie, Amber Citrine and Lemon Drop. The leaves were stamped in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I then cut the images using coordinating dies and arranged them onto the card as shown in the picture. I heat embossed the sentiment from Large Florals Daisy in Rose Gold on a vellum banner and glued it onto the card. To embellish my card I added a few rose gold  flower sequins from Spring Fawn Couture Mix. I added a layer of clear glitter on the leaves but it’s hard to see here :).

TT0212 3 CU1 WM

With Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die you can create a beautiful card so easily and quick.

TT0212 2 2 new WM

I cut Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate once from some watercolor paper and two more times from white cardstock and stack them together. I watercolored the front die cut panel and covered the sentiment with a layer of clear glitter. The background panel was created in the same way like the first card. I glued it on a top folding cardbase and mounted the colored die cut piece. To finish off I added some pretty sequins from Raspberry Sparkle and Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.
